d) If the product does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only
those controls that are covered by the operating
instructions as an improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often
require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the product to its normal operation,
e) If the product has been dropped or damaged in
any way, and
f) When the product exhibits a distinct change in
performance - this indicates a need for service.
19) Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are

22) Power Lines - An outside antenna system should not
be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or
other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall
into such power lines or circuits. When installing an
outside antenna system, extreme care should be
taken to keep from touching such power lines or
circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
23) Protective Attachment Plug - The product is equipped
with an attachment plug having overload protection.
This is a safety feature. See Instruction Manual for
replacement or resetting of protective device. If
replacement of the plug is required, be sure the
service technician has used a replacement plug
specified by the manufacturer that has the same
overload protection as the original plug.

● This unit can be operated (power on/off or volume up/down) via a TV or similar component which supports HDMI CEC
(Consumer Electronics Control). If this does not work, it does not mean this system is faulty. Refer to the operation manual
of the respective component on how to activate the CEC.
Example: Go to the Menu of the component to search and enable the CEC. Different brands may have different naming for
the CEC. For Sharp LCD TV, it is named as AQUOS LINK.
● To listen to the sound from this system, you will need to adjust settings within the TV menu.
For details, refer to the operation manual of the TV.
● If you are unable to select external speaker setting from the TV menu (E.g. For Sharp LCD TV, it is named as AQUOS AUDIO
SP), turn the CEC OFF and ON again.
● Make sure the LCD TV Audio output setting is set to PCM, not other formats such as Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.
● To enjoy 3D images, this system must be connected to a 3D-compatible TV and components (3D BD player, etc.) via High
Speed HDMI cables. Put on the 3D glasses, otherwise 3D images may not be viewed properly.
